Customer Question

My isuzu rodeo 2000 stalls in idle occasionally
JA: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?
Customer: no engine light though
JA: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: I can restart it a few times and when it starts it will eiter jump wildly in the RPM's and I know it will stall, or it will settle in at 1 and I know it will drive OK
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I don't see how
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should be aware of about your Isuzu?
Customer: Not that I can think of
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
